Interest Cost Of Delaying Lawmaker Paychecks Still Not Tabulated


It’s still not known how much extra the state will have to pay in interest for the two-month delay in issuing paychecks to Illinois lawmakers. 

 

A judge who last week ruled that Governor Pat Quinn overstepped his bounds in vetoing legislative salaries ordered that the House and Senate members receive their back pay with interest. 

 

A spokesman for Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka says the paychecks have gone out, without the extra amount tacked on for interest.  He says the office is seeking a clarification from the court on how much interest will have to be paid.
